One a Day in May - Day 3

Remember what I said about knowing when to stop?  Compared to yesterday's understated elegance,  today's card is more overstated chaos.  And I have more flowers stuck to my fingers than I do to the card!  Which was part of the problem.  I kept tearing the pressed flowers but then parts of them stayed glued down so I had to cover them up with more flowers and ended up with a bit of a jumble.

I also managed to cut and stamp the lavender soap I made the other night.
I'm going to try to get up earlier tomorrow morning and get into my studio before my day job uses up all my energy!
